ROSIE'S park street childminding
My Childminding setting is a happy, safe and child led environment. The children have an large range of resources to choose from and are encouraged to follow their interests through play. Because of the low ratios I am able to really get to know each individual child and plan to their needs and interests.
I use an online system to send daily updates, photographs and to track developmental progress. I make sure that you are happy with all policies and procedures before starting and ensure a reassuring settling in process.
By choosing a childminding setting you are able to choose exactly the right person to look after your child, who will remain their key person throughout their childcare experience .
One of the reasons I became a childminder was because I wanted to form close bonds and relationships with the children and families I work with. Something I couldn't do as easily as a Teacher. I also wanted to work with younger children and babies because helping children form strong, positive attachments at this age is so important.
Mixed age groups are a fantastic opportunity for children of all ages. Younger children learn in awe from the older children and older children learn patience and empathy through being around younger children. It is one of the biggest benefits of childminding settings in my opinion.
